This is an original encaustic painting of sunflowers. This painting is on a birch panel and measures 6x12x 1 3/4. This painting uses coffee and designer paper. The sides are painted with stain and varnished to give a beautiful finish.

The word Encaustic, from ancient Greek, means “to heat” and that is the basis for encaustic painting. Wax, primarily bees wax, with or without added pigment and mixed with a small amount of damar resin, is heated to a liquid state and applied to a ground with brushes. Painting is done quickly, as the wax starts to harden as soon as it is separated from its heat source. Each painted layer must be fused to the next to create a solid piece that becomes the encaustic painting. It is one of the most durable painting mediums since wax is impervious to moisture and over time will retain its original colors.
